Any cigar aficionado will tell you that a great cigar shop begins with an excellent selection of sticks — but that's not the only factor. Some smokers prioritize knowledgeable staff. Others look for a comfortable smoking lounge. Dominoes games, delicious drinks, a walk-in humidor — any of these might place one shop above the rest, depending upon whom you ask. But whatever you're looking for in a cigar shop, Cuban Crafters Cigars likely delivers. Shoppers here can find all of the above plus an almost comically vast array of other amenities. A free cigar upon arrival? It's in your hand. Free Cuban coffee as you shop? Drink up. Need a haircut? Step into the onsite barbershop. Yes, really, it's all housed in a massive space that doubles as a cigar factory, where you can watch the product being rolled before your very eyes. If Willy Wonka had sold cigars instead of chocolate, his factory would've looked something like this. Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
